So it’s not quite the Golden Gate Bridge

So it’s not quite the Golden Gate Bridge

I just saw more excellence in Golden Gate Bridge photography posted by my bud, +Joe Azure, and it reminded me of the epic sunrise photowalk that both Joe and I, along with +Nicole S. Young, +Matt Kloskowski, +Ricardo Lagos, +Mark Esguerra, and +Brian Bach Sørensen, went on during the +Google+ Photographer’s Conference.

And then I remembered the fog. Ohhhh, the fog. The very fog that turned an entire bridge and the water it spans into a massive softbox of nothingness. Bitter much? :)

Still, we all made the most of it and headed down to Fort Baker to get some shots at the base of the bridge that we couldn’t see. In the end, I walked away with this image of the pier taken with my Lee Big Stopper. The shoot didn’t pan out quite the way any of us expected but it was still a blast to hang with a bunch of solid photographers. :)

Oh, and here is a link to Joe’s amazing shot. I hate you in a tiny way, Joe.

    Great shot.

    I just took a similar one this morning with the fog and still bay:

    I'm hoping to either put together or join an SF photowalk in the next month or so. Bummed I missed the conference.
